This is today's post

O.K. I got the Cds and DVDs back from GT Recording.
I got the mp3s edited and posted.
First, second, and third on the widget.
The video of the event is too long to post on YouTube so I'll have to find a way to edit it down to the separate movements.

If anybody would like a copy, lemmeknow.

And on the literary front

Intelligent, well educated professional women determining the fate of the world in a game of jacks

You can't see the jacks very well in this picture, but they are there as is the little rubber ball.

This rather surprising event occurred at the tail end of Sunday's book group meeting.
The book in question was "My Jim"
It's about the wife of the slave in Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn".
A poignant account of slavery before, through and after the civil war.

And in a halloweenly mode

Here is this household's contribution to that day's hi jinks.

And that's what I have to say about that

I wish I was more of a
cartoonist, in the Gahan Wilson
mode, for "Intelligent, well
educated women determining the
fate of the world in a game
of jacks," begs to be immortialized
in that form. Perhaps there are
still some remnants of MAD
magazine humor left within you,
sir. You were the one back in the
60's that got me hooked reading
it. Really neat that you got
your CD's and DVD's back. I,
for one, would love to have
a copy. I still feel unable
to really enjoy YouTube cuz most
of the time I am blocked out of
it here at the office, where my
computer is more at hand; that
and FaceBook. Anyway, congrats.
I returned to the British gal's
site to leave a comment, and
loved that you left one warning
the bloggers that I might get
involved one of these days.
I have not tried at home yet
on my Mac. Perhaps that will
work. Jannie let me know that
she had a hard drive crash
recently; bummer.
Rick Mobbs has been going thru
some kind of emotional turmoil,
and doesn't blog much any more.
Damned shame, his art and his
poetry kept me stoked up for
over a year. Changes, bah,
I just try and keep them at
a minimum. I am such a habitual
creature it is ridiculous.
MY JIM sounds like it might be
a terrific book. I will recommend
it to my Miss M, who reads
constantly. Have you got into
Sherman's WAR DANCES yet. I got
my copy, but I am still slogging
through FACE--and now I am hung
up on Duane Locke, a very eccentric
English prof, artist, and poet,
who is getting the lion's share
of space over on FFTR. But, hey,
there is always room for another
Palmer poem, Shapiro poem, Jannie
poem, or even one of mine as the
spirit moves me.
Odd, now that retirement is
really a thing that will happen
next summer, I seem to be a
bit panicky about getting my
house in order; lot of crap
to do with Social Security,
my 401K retirement fund, work,
readying my wife for it, etc,
etc. Now that is a Change that
I will get behind and support
with all my energy, enit?

I couldn't think of Friko's
name for a mo; excuse me, Mum.
Anyway, I still can't seem to
be able to leave a comment there.
I wonder if the Universe, or those
damned cyber gnomes are really
keen on keeping me off that blog?
I like her writing too. She sent
me a nice email, so maybe that
will be the extent of my
communication with her.

Hallo, Lane!
Thanks for the picture of the "intelligent, well educated women", but you didn't identify them; the one who is facing the camera looks like Meredith, but (I think) she's not a member of your book club (or is she??).

That's Kathy, she's a "health care specialist" for Group Health.
The one on the left is Meredith, a different one, she just retired from Microsoft she's an artist.
And on your right Ann, the architect.
Book group alumni, all.
